Wow what a quick week. Week one of my "lets get organized" kick seemed to have gone by pretty quick and easy. I have a partner so to speak working along with me, she and I spent quite an afternoon searching for her a copy of the book so that she could have the check lists and journal pages that are in it for herself. I feel like I will see this road to the end knowing that someone is so willing to keep me on track and accountable. And it is a nice weekly reward to sit down have lunch and talk about our success and our failures. Trust me I have failures especially when it comes to being organized.
I didn't really have to make too many changes this week as I already make sure I get plenty of sleep(with having a weird schedule and working some weekends every day seems like a work day at our house and we go to bed early every night). I am constantly making little to do lists for me and every one else in the house. Most the time its chore lists for the girls. I don't watch a ton of TV because I am more addicted to reading & the Internet than the television. The one thing I need to work on most from week one is the elimination of clutter. We are working on the laundry room first. As that room seems to be a dumping ground of sorts, if something doesn't have a home it gets stashed in the laundry room until someone needs it. I have a lot of work to do in this room. It lacks proper storage solutions so I am working on getting and keeping laundry caught up so that I can toss out the things no one needs or uses. This is where week one ended. Not a bad start to my new adventure.
This week we are beginning week 2 organize your priorities. I feel like this is different for everyone so there is one thing you will have to ask yourself "what's important to me, what do I want to accomplish?" And then make a list of top ten things to do to help you work towards what it is that's important to you. I want an organized less cluttered home I also want to remodel a few rooms in our house and can't do it until things are less stuffed with stuff. I want the less cluttered revamped home so that I can spend more time entertaining my friends and family in a more comfortable, inviting home. So I will continue working on the laundry room and which ever room comes to mind after that work on setting up more of my priorities and see what happens.
